Prioritizing waiver-wire picks at wide receiver
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/21/14) In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg takes a look at the wide receivers most worth adding ahead of this week's games.
The list is headlined by new Seahawks' No. 1 Doug Baldwin (33 percent owned), with Odell Beckham (68 percent) of the Giants, Davante Adams (21 percent) of the Packers, Allen Robinson (34 percent) of the Jaguars and Brandon LaFell (56 percent) of the Patriots rounding out the remainder of the top five.
If you need to drop someone to make room for any pickups this week, he also recommends possibly parting ways with the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson (81 percent) or the Steelers' Markus Wheaton (35 percent).
Odell Beckham shows he's worth adding
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/20/14) Only three games into his career, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham has emerged as one of quarterback Eli Manning's favorite red-zone targets, which is especially good news with another one of his favorite red-zone targets, Victor Cruz, lost for the season with a knee injury.
Beckham didn't have a lot of chances Week 7 at Dallas, but he made the most of the ones he got, scoring on catches of 9 and 5 yards. In all, he had four catches for 34 yards. His six targets were third-most on the team, behind wide receiver Rueben Randle's nine and tight end Larry Donnell's seven.
The six targets were a season high for Beckham. He has yet to catch more than four passes for more than 44 yards, but because he keeps getting looks in the end zone, he's worth adding in Fantasy even if it's just to stash him on your bench until you're ready to put your trust in him.
Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. hauls in two scores Week 7
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/19/14) Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. pulled in two scores Week 7 against the Cowboys.
Beckham didn't play a huge role in the game, but turned into a go-to option in the red zone. Beckham managed to grab a 9 yard score in the second quarter, and scored from 5 yards out in the fourth quarter. He finished with four receptions for 44 yards.
Beckham is on a bye Week 8.
Is either Giants wide receiver worth using?
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/16/14) The Giants will begin life without top wide receiver Victor Cruz Week 7 at Dallas, leaving Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham to pick up the slack. So should you be looking to start them in Fantasy?
In Beckham's case, not yet. The rookie will be playing in only his third game after missing the first four with a hamstring injury, but as the 12th overall pick in the draft, he obviously has the potential to be an impact player. Let's just see him put together a 50-yard game first.
Randle is a different story because he was already a major part of the passing game before Cruz went down, actually leading the Giants in targets with 49. He's gotten at least nine in each of the last four games.
Of course, he doesn't have the yardage to show for it, so at least in standard leagues (as in non-PPR), he's still an iffy option. He probably will pick up some of Cruz's slack and become a more advisable option across the board, but this isn't the best matchup to test him out. Though the Cowboys rank a modest 12th against the pass, they've allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points per game this season.
Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank Randle right around 30th at wide receiver for this week.
Giants coordinator tempering expectations for Odell Beckham
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/16/14) There are a lot of expectations for Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham to be one of the players that step up in the passing game in the wake of Victor Cruz's season-ending knee injury.
On Thursday, though, Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo appeared to temper the expectations for Beckham, who has played in just two games after missing the first four due to a hamstring injury.
"He's getting his football legs back underneath him," McAdoo said, per the New York Post.
|The Giants drafted rookie receiver Odell Beckham in the first round of the NFL Draft from LSU. He is expected to start right away as the No. 2 receiver behind Victor Cruz. Beckham will add life to the Giants passing game, which has to replace the departed Hakeem Nicks, and he had 143 catches for 2,340 yards and 12 touchdowns in college. We consider Beckham a No. 4 Fantasy receiver with upside, and he's worth drafting with a mid- to late-round pick in all seasonal leagues. In rookie-only formats Beckham is a Top 10 overall selection, and he's a mid-round pick in all dynasty and keeper leagues.
